Choose a moisturizer

The key to creating your own skin glow is finding the best moisturizer for your skin. Not all moisturizers go well with every skin type. It’s important to find the moisturizer best for your skin, so your skin is left feeling smooth and glistening.

An ideal choice for having the best summer skin glow is using baby oil. Baby oil is perfect for all skin types and leaves your skin feeling amazing and glossy. Just make sure you don’t overdo it! You don’t want to spend all day looking like you just hopped out of the pool.

Find a shimmer

Shimmer is easily located, probably easier than you think. Most shimmer products are made with the same ingredients. Usually the same ingredients that are used for eye shadows are the same as the ones used for glittery moisturizers.

Simply grab your favorite eye shadow color and break it up into small pieces so it can easily be applied with your moisturizer. It’s been noted that warmer eye shadow colors add more of a pop, and eye shadows that are lighter in hue gives a more sparkly look.

You can also purchase body shimmers at Sephora, Macy’s, and more. Look for bronzers and warm, sun-kissed colors. This will ensure you get the summer glow you are looking for.


Once you’ve had the chance to choose your moisturizer and shimmer, the fun can begin! With an empty travel-size bottle, you can take your new-found product wherever you go!

Add the crushed-up eye shadow or body shimmer and pour in the baby oil. Shake well and watch how your summer shimmery oil comes to life. Once both products have been mixed well, you can now apply over your body creating your own summer skin glow.

Voila! You’ve just saved yourself a good amount of money, while still looking flawless in the sun.
